ago was just starting to rise. since then in that 24 hours the city has been crippled. we're talking about $20 billion in infrastructure damage, $10 billion to $30 billion in lost business reeceipts. if those numbers are right by some estimates, that would be the worst disaster in u.s. history. we're also looking at a subway system, the best in the world some say, that currently is not working, not functional, and won't be for several days. it could be more than that. electricity south of 39th street gone for the most part. overnight and now today in some parts of where i'm standing right now, battery park on the southern tip of manhattan, they don't even have cell service, they don't have broadband service here and there. they've just taken down a tree that was felled not too long ago. that took about 45 minutes. up to my right there's a residential tower, just to give you a sense of how the financial center of the united states is not necessarily at its best, crippled at the moment, that tower normally would be lit up with lights. they're not right now. martin, it is difficult goin

be serious though. and down in sun city, florida, it was vice president joe biden who hit the same theme with a new twist on an old favorite. riffing on the president's description of romney's sketchy deal. >> but i would respectfully suggest they're not sketchy, they're etch-a-sketchy. they're shaking that sucker. i tell you what, dial in a new sketch. >> yes, indeed, they are desperately trying to dial in a new sketch, one that will lay out a path to the white house which is looking rather more challenging with two new nbc polls that reinforce the president's firewall in the midwest. in wisconsin obama leads romney by six points among likely voters, 51% to 45%. in iowa the president is up by eight points, 51% to 3%. bo both of them nearly identical to last month. here is an electoral challenge. iowa plus wisconsin plus ohio equals four more years for president obama. let's get right to our panel. in washington professor michael eric dyson, an msnbc political analyst, dana bill mamilbank a columnist for "the washington post," and ari melber, i'm suffering a case of romnesia, he's a msnb

storm is bearing down on the city and the entire eastern seaboard is due to make landfall as soon as an hour from now south of atlantic city, new jersey. at this hour just one example of the hazards brought by this storm, a partially collapsed crane is hanging over the streets of midtown manhattan. 57th street and 6th avenue, just a few blocks from here at rockefeller center. a volatile situation with winds just starting to reach hurricane level. this storm has already left at least 69 people dead in the caribbean and as it barrels up the coast, sandy is bringing furious winds, fierce rain, and dangerous flooding to nearly 60 million people in its path. a path that stretches more than 800 miles from north carolina to maine. hundreds of thousands have been ordered to evacuate. transit systems are shut down. the federal government is closed. and just eight days out from election day, the super storm is impacting the presidential race as well. president canceled a florida campaign rally this morning, returning to washington to meet with his storm response team. and this afternoon the

at a storm shelter near atlantic city, accompanied by governor chris christie. the jersey shore, once home to the frivolous activities of a reality show, now marked as the area hardest hit by the storm. whole towns, swallowed by the storm. communities and lives left in disarray. and with six days to go until the presidential election, there were no overt politics in new jersey today. with the commander in chief seizing the moment to work with a republican governor, offering leadership and comfort in a moment of crisis and catastrophe. and while the president has canceled several days of campaigning to respond to the disaster, mitt romney is carrying on the campaign trail in florida today. mr. romney faces the challenge of pivoting a campaign based almost entirely on criticizing the president as a failure and facing dreaded questions on his statement that he'd cut fema and return it to the states. the campaign has a clear media strategy on that front, and many others, of course. it's three weeks since mr. romney took a question from any reporter. let's get rate to our panel, as we await the

. let's get right to our panel now. holding down the fort in new york city is msnbc political analyst karen finney. in washington, dana milbank a political columnist for the washington post and here in florida, michael hastings. great to have you here. mike, if i can start with you, given the fact that 17 of mr. romney's foreign policy advisers out of 24 are all from the bush administration, that's 70%, shouldn't george bush be the one here for this debate? wouldn't he be the right person. >> the ma man you put on earlier was the chief spokesperson during the worst days of the american occupation of iraq. the fact that he's one of governor romney's top advisers is very concerning. i think in terms of the foreign policy issue that you're dealing with now, afghanistan, iraq, these were legacy foreign policy issues that obama inherited and had to fix. he withdrew from iraq and he decided to escalate in afghanistan. >> karen, romney at least in public is sprinting away from his neocon advisers quicker than usain bolt's 100 meter record but isn't his foreign policy as befuddled as his econ

rid of violent crime in the inner cities, you have to increase opportunities. and then this happens. >> and you can do all that by cutting taxes, with a big tax cut. >> those are your words, not mine. >> thank you very much, sir. >> yeah. that was kind of strange. trying to stuff words in people's mouths? >> i don't know if it's strange. >> it sounds like you're trying to answer the question for me. that's a little odd. >> here with us now, ari melber a correspondent for the nation and jonathan alter, an msnbc political analyst. ari, you said earlier and i heard you, that you didn't believe that mr. ryan was acting out of kilter there but was being fairly reasonable with a rather jumped up local reporter. but isn't it the case that every ailment in society according to paul ryan is solved by tax cuts? everything from leprosy to the deficit? >> i think that's his you view. >> so that was a fair interaction. >> one of the problems we have is sort of the jumpiness. andrew sullivan finds a poll, freaks out, and you kind of got to tell him to fall back, and i saw at least on buzz feed th

't get health insurance with their jobs. they're not living in some inner city apartment the way he likes to talk. that's a horrible plan for the american people. why should 40 million people have to sit in the emergency room? is that your plan? my view of tonight in scoring it, by the way, how many times do we hear the phrase vouchers? how many times do we hear the phrase emergency rooms and personhood and bankruptcy and 47%? >> and 47%. >> and bankruptcy. the president of the united states never mentioned our great auto industry and how he rescued it, never mentioned it. never mentioned the fact that he fought for and got a law passed saying that women get the same pay as men. they didn't used to. these are great accomplishments. they're not changing the world but for a lot of people they changed their worlds. why didn't he bring this stuff up? he's waiting for jim lehrer to bring it up? waiting for him to bring up these topics? he wasn't going to do it. certainly romney -- i have to remind you, mr. frez, i said the 47% of the american people don't count. i was going to remind you, mr.

a listen to this. >> the american dream is very simply the fact that a young man born in inner city of atlanta, georgia, 1961, now lives here. that's the american dream. there's no such thing as a somali dream, a chinese dream, there's one dream, the american dream and that's why people came to these shores. >> okay. before you start laughing, why does mr. west feel that he has to deride every single other nation? he almost seems to have taken mitt romney's comment about the 47% and extended it to the whole planet, that nobody can have any dreams apart from this country. >> i her schoolhouse rock there was one of the dings they had, the great american melting pot and showed all these different people jumping into the pot and that became america. >> yes. >> clearly alan west has never seen schoolhouse rock and that's a problem for him and the reason that's a problem is he seems to have a mentality that it's only about america. it is only about america that's made up of somalis that have come here and mexicans that have come here and irish people that have come here and the list is en

candidates hunkered down in last-minute debate preparations. mitt romney is out in the mile high city carb loading at chipotle today. >> how are you doing? >> are you ready for tomorrow? >> hi there. getting there. how are you? >> getting there. just giving him another six years. indeed, you know what mitt romney's been working hard, maybe fighting for a little air when he goes on a nostalgic riff. in this case the rocky mountains are just the right height. >> when avis boy my mom and dad used to read to me from a book called "men to match my mountains." perhaps we should change the title to "men and women to match my mountains" because right here men and women have matched the mountains of colorado. >> he's really working on the zingers. we see what you did there, mitt, adding women into the mix. nice. anything to do with the president's 18-point lead with women putting him four points above romney nationwide? no, i'm sure not. by the way, the same poll shows voters expect 54% to 28% that the president will win the dae bates. the president doesn't seem too worried. delivering pizza to a n

white house correspondent, and holding it down in new york city, msnbc political analyst karen finney. john, are you there in the spin room. as you know, the spinning begins before either candidate has spoken. we've seen both parties attempt to deflate expectations. but isn't the biggest challenge for mitt romney, not what he plans to say tonight, but how he explains what he's already said, in particular, his derision for 47% of the people in this country? >> reporter: certainly, martin, he's going to have to address that and try to diffuse that issue. look, this is an incredibly important event in the campaign. tens of millions of people will watch these two guys standing side by side. mitt romney is behind, but behind by three points. he could still win this race. he's got to figure out a way to both hurt obama, help himself, make credible arguments his economic plan will make the lives of 100% of americans better, and try to establish some connection with the american people he hasn't been able to do on far. it's a tall order. it's not impossible. >> well, thankfully, john, i'm nea

the chinese and the american economy are in some good ways. take the city of toledo, for instance. it would be interesting for people to listen to the mayor of toledo talk about how many thousands of jobs have been created in toledo through chinese/american joint partnerships, joint investments in the toledo area. so what romney is doing here is just the worst kind of pandering saying he would declare them a manipulator. it's ridiculous. the value of the yuan has actually been declining anyway down about 15%. but what it points to is that he's just trying to get the votes of people who don't like china for some reason. he's parading as this pro-business executive who understands the business world. he understands it perfectly well that that is not the way you conduct u.s./chinese relations, to attack them on the first day of his presidency. >> but is it pandering? >> total pander. >> or sticking up for what he believes. >> he doesn't believe that for a nano second, and none of his friends believe it. not a single one of his friends in his crowd at bain capital, outside of bain capital belie

a large urban city. what's wrong with the emergency room for those without insurance as mitt romney says? i mean, it seems to be working fine. >> well, aside from being callous and cold, it's the most expensive way to achieve health care. we ought to be making sure people are healthy so they don't have to go to the emergency room. emergency room costs are between two to three times more expensive than a typical method, and they would cause the health care budget in the united states to explode. but he doesn't really care about that because he plans on block granting health care expenses to the states anyway. it will be up to states to deal with that problem because if he and paul ryan have their way, they will be block granting more and more health care services to the states. >> indeed. let me get your take, sir, on paul ryan's visit to a soup kitchen in ohio on monday. he was there for the purpose of a photo-op. i'm not sure ryan picked up on the irony of it because if he and romney are elected, soup kitchens will be about all the poor have left, won't they? >> well, you know, i think
